Hulu Sets Premiere Date for Season 3 of 'The Great'

Hulu has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming third season of its original comedy series The Great.

All 10 episodes of the third season will be available on Friday, May 12.

The new season sees Catherine and Peter attempt to make their marriage work after some seemingly insurmountable problems. Peter witnessed his own attempted murder at Catherine's hands and she also imprisoned all of his friends. On top of this, Peter is at a loose end playing First Husband to Catherine's reign, so he busies himself with fathering, hunting and salty culinary ventures. But they're not enough to keep him contented as visions of his late father get in his head about his failures as Peter the Great's son. Catherine the Great starts making a name for herself beyond her borders and inspired by a visit from the US ambassador, sets up a conference where peasants, nobles and merchants can all give their input on developing a new Russia. She learns that even the best political leaders sometimes need to make compromises in order to progress.

The comedy stars Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Sacha Dhawan, Charity Wakefield, Gwilym Lee, Adam Godley, Douglas Hodge, Belinda Bromilow, Bayo Gbadamosi and Florence Keith-Roach.

Tony McNamara created the series. He executive produces with Fanning, Hoult, Marian Macgowan, Mark Winemaker, Brittany Kahan Ward, Doug Mankoff, Andrew Spaulding, Ron West and Josh Kesselman. MRC Television, Civic Center Media, Echo Lake Entertainment and Thruline Entertainment produce.
